Dr. Harley Jolley …”Mr. Blue Ridge Parkway”

At the age of 92, one may accumulate many credentials … all of which are true.

Seasonal ranger and historian for the Blue Ridge Parkway as a young man…

Veteran of the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC), even as a younger man…

Veteran of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor….

Distinguished retired Professor of History at Mars Hill College….

Recipient of North Carolina’s Order of the Long Leaf Pine….

Kind.  Compassionate. Respecting.  A historian’s historian.  A friend to everyone.
